Brinkley's Garden ~ newly refurbished with a new modern look. Find us on Hollywood Road in Chelsea close to the Fulham Road and with in walking distance of Earl's Court tube station.

The food is simple and unpretentious, offering varied, home-cooked food, using the freshest ingredients.

There is a very pretty garden which is open when the weather is warm and has overhead heaters for the cooler evenings. There are also tables outside on the pavement.

On the whole, i wouldn't hesitate to come here again and recommend it to others. Great food, wine, atmosphere and location. We always enjoy it.

However, The burrata was one of the most revolting starters we had ever eaten i'm afraid - it was smothered in whole coriander seeds and there was an overwhelming taste of lavender which was really really unpleasant. We could not eat it for having to pick the seeds off the cheese and out of our teeth. The flavours were all wrong and the burrata itself had been shaped in a small round mold like a desert - not at all what you want when this cheese is best in its purest form.

The tuna tartar by contrast was one of the best i have had - and i ordered it as my main. It was generously portioned, perfectly seasoned, and the crisp toasted bread was the perfect way to serve it.

A small point about the environment - the garden was covered the evening we came, and the heaters were on full blast - it was actually too hot, which one shouldn't complain about but we were dressed for more of an outdoor climate and it was warmer than the bar inside. Lovely if you know that there is no need to wear a jumper, but uncomfortable otherwise. We had to ask for the heater over our table to be turned off.

Brinkley’s is a favourite local restaurant for our family.
The staff are always lovely and thoughtful.
Unfortunately I had to cancel last minute due to family Illness - but will be booking again soon.

It was a nice night but the service abandonment ruined it. I didn’t feel that our table was in Siberia but that’s how isolated we were by the staff. By the end of the meal I got up to find someone to ask for coffees. Fun vibe but not sure if worth returning unless it’s a night when timely service is not a concern. Great if you have a few bottles of wine to keep yourselves occupied but I’m more traditional in my expectations.

The place is nice but the food and service needs to improve a lot, the quality of the food is poor and the service is not good as well.

Very good food and very good all round service, comfort, and affordability. A most enjoyable evening out with friends where you were able to hear one another without straining. The menu was varied and interesting. The wine selection was very reasonable and at 100 per head for three courses and wine, this was relatively affordable for Chelsea.

My friend and I had a wonderful lunch. I had the calves liver which was delicious and my friend had the prawn Thai curry which she has every time!
Service was great. It is a restaurant that I have visited several times and will continue to frequent it.

Lunch menu. The food was excellent; gnocchi w beetroot and almonds; and chimichurri chicken w cous cous. The Chablis by the glass was fantastic. Nice conservatory/garden. Best lunch I’ve had in a long time.

Always welcoming and enjoyable. No problem staying longer than the allotted time. Good affordable wines. 12.5% service could be 10% , but no quibbles there. Reliable menu, however I would like to see some seasonal changes from time to time. Overall wonderful as usual, especially on a balmy Saturday afternoon in late-Summer. Would always return.

Great location with s real buzz. Was s semi -balmy evening and we were lucky to have a perfect table outside in the garden with the roof half open to start with, as planned. Good wholesome food with s very well priced wine list, one could be forgiven for thinking that one was in the Sof France where I had just come from.
Nice cosmopolitan crowd in the restaurant all ages. Brinkleys in Chelsea, a great institution.

We had a table in the garden instead of a table on the street as required. It was really very noisy but the food was good.
